YOP Update Oct 2, 2011

It’s another Sunday and a special one in my house as today is also our 7th wedding anniversary.  (I’ve made him three sweaters in 7 years.  I think that’s pretty good right?)

On to the knitting.  It’s been a busy cast on week for me.  That’s a really polite way to say that I went a little bit nuts with startitis.  I’ve started working on the design for the rest of my husband’s Christmas gift. (I’m writing it down as I go.  It will be available after Christmas as a free pattern if you want to make it too.)  Charee and the weekend slippers both for my mum have been started.  The rest of the minion army is going to be making an appearance soon, and My Vampire Boyfriend has been added to the list and cast on.  So things look like this.  I’ve reached the point when I have to switch my knitting to at least %90 holiday gift knitting.  so wish me many FO’s soon.
